When we were booking our stay in Zanzibar it was not so evident which place is better and which is not so good so we booked 5 nights in Zanzibar and 5 nights in a different hotel (where we were supposed to get a better beach) and it was our biggest mistake. The first thing - the hotel exeeded our... More

We stayed for 6 nights post safari in a 2 bed family villa. These aren't beachside, but have a pretty enough garden and are extremely comfortable. We've done similar beach-post-bush breaks in Mozambique and Mauritius but this was probably the nicest. The staff were outstandingly good as was the food. We loved our pre-supper cocktails (teenage kids) and for us... More

We stayed at Baraza for 6 nights. Initially I was disappointed at location of our room - Villa 29 - last villa against perimeter wall in last line of villas. Not my ideal spot but villa was very nice. Hotel gardens are still very young so will look better in a few years. Interior design - all a bit monotone... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. The resort was OK though sea weeds made it impossible to swim in the sea (probably due to tide season). Villas were spacious and A/C was OK. Beware of the internet. Extremely slow. Lots of geckos and mosquitos, though beds had nets. Restaurant was very well run&managed by Mr. Jean-Armond Kalei. He went out... More

We spent 8 nights here in October after a short safari in the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania. The resort was everything we expected and more. Excellent food, a real variety of pan asian and international cuisines. Highly attentive service. The place is big enough that you don't really see other guests, especially if you have an ocean front villa... More

This is an excellent hotel by African standards. Very stylish, friendly staff, secure. The food is good, however there was no a la carte option, and make sure you finish your set course dinner otherwise you will be bombarded with questions if you have enjoyed it and why you have not eaten everything. POWER CUTS every evening remind you that... More

A beautiful hotel. We're just departing at the airport now. But a number of little missteps along the way that don't warrant its extensive price or rating. Nothing was enough to warrant a call to a manager, but the totality of misses had us second guessing what otherwise would be a great resort on a great beach. Food was great... More

Having both travelled extensively around the world, it surprised me that neither myself nor my Dutch girlfriend had ever been to Africa. One call to Pure Zanzibar later and we were set for a luxury holiday, at a price which was lower than you would expect, if the hotels descriptions were to be believed. So it was with a mixture...
